The Leviathan is coming along! She's all painted-up, and walls have been installed.

Jesse and I were up at the Lab, having a nice walk around and plotting the coming acre-garden up there. Here's the mid morning view we had.

Sometimes the tipi just isn't alternative enough.

My Greenwood table is finally done. I've been putting nights and weekends into it off and on for about a month. This was my first experiment with mortis and tenon joinery. Working with roundwood is way more time consuming than dimensional lumber, but it was a fun project for the most part.

1st pic is the tools used for virtually the whole project. I also used a screwgun here and there for some joints that didn't seal well enough, but that was the only power tool involved.

2nd is a side view where you can see lots of the bracing, as well as little fish I put in the middle of the two lengthwise braces. The table looked "fishy" to me as I made it- turns out crooked logs don't want to be made plum or level, so everything looks a little... off. I wanted to celebrate how the table came out so I looked for a place to install a fish. And now I call it my fishy table.

More pictures of details coming soon.

Another pic. This is inside .7. .7 is fairly clean, but could possibly use some touch ups and some more furniture before we have video shot in it.

A sonic boom would certainly ruin a giant souffle. But this tiny ad would protect it:
